Not reserving additional capital for the inevitable follow-on round. ▪ Investing in fewer than 20 deals. ▪ Becoming an angel without a long-term (10 years or more) commitment. ▪ Dragging out the investment process unnecessarily. Some of the terms I use in this list (convertible note, follow-on round, and so on) may be unfamiliar. Don’t worry—after you read a bit further you’ll understand what you need to know about them (they’re also listed with explanations in the glossary at the end of the book).

Another characteristic that virtually all successful angels share is a constant search for the “big vision” investment. Look at the numbers I presented a few pages back.

Although I didn’t invest when I had the opportunity in companies like Sling Media, Quirky, and Pinterest, I did invest in quite a few companies that went belly-up, taking all my investment with them.
